Two new games have made the Xbox Live Arcade a more retro-tastic place today.
First up is Serious Sam Double D XXL, a side-scrolling shooter based on the popular Serious Sam series. Like it’s first person shooter sibling, Double D XXL isn’t at all serious and promises crazy things like a chainsaw yo-yo and a butter gun.
Serious Sam Double D XXL is available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10):
Serious Sam explodes into the second dimension using everything in his arsenal to battle the legions of Mental’s horde. Let the heavy ordinance fly in this side-scrolling shooter featuring all the over-the-top action of the Serious Sam series. Stack guns one on top of the other, up to 6 GUNS HIGH, and take down unrelenting waves of beasts. Bring a friend for two-player action, and upgrade your guns to fire deadly acid rockets, cybernetic bees, chainsaw yo-yos, even pats of butter and much more!
Also available this week is the first installment in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet. The “1987 Pack” includes 1943: Battle of Midway, Black Dragon, and Avengers. It can be had for a handful of quarters or 400 Microsoft Points or $5:
